Our Preschool provides that important first step in your child's education, which sets the pathway to learning and brings a sense of belonging to the wider school community. Through ongoing links and transition programs with our K-6 school, your child will be a part of our positive school community. We look forward to an exciting, challenging and rewarding learning journey with your child.
Enrolments for 2024 will open on Monday 15th May, 2023. Enrolment packs may be collected from the school office.
Department of Education Preschools provide educational programs for children for one year prior to enrolment in Kindergarten.
A child may be eligible for enrolment in preschool from the beginning of the school year if they turn four years on or before 31 July that year.
Soldiers’ Settlement Public School's enrolment applications consistently exceed the available positions so it is important to note that placement is not guaranteed.
Every application received is reviewed individually, prioritised based on the eligibility criteria contained in the preschool's Enrolment Policy and not in order of applications received.
The Preschool Curriculum
We are implementing ‘Belonging, Being & Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia'. The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children's learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:
• Children have a strong sense of identity
• Children are connected with and contribute to their world
• Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
• Children are confident and involved learners
• Children are effective communicators.
Please see the Early Years Learning Framework page which provides a link to the EYLF document and explains the Early Childhood National Curriculum in further detail.
Please note that regular and consistent attendance is important to achieve the best possible educational outcomes for your child.
